I’m not much of a mechanic. I can do an oil change and I can keep tabs on tire pressure, but that’s about it. Last night, while driving home, I noticed that my front-right headlamp had gone out. Thankfully, the high-beams and the front-left lamp still worked. This morning, I went to the local auto parts store and purchased two replacement bulbs. I decided to go ahead and replace both low-beam lamps, the left and the right.
Changing the bulbs took about five minutes, once I figured out that all I had to do was depress a little white clip, pull out a wire, rotate the old bulb, pull it out, replace it with the new bulb, rotate the new bulb into place, and reattach the wire.
I used AutoZone’s product finder to find the replacement bulb. They were having a sale on their XtraVision brand head lamps – two for $20 – so that’s what I purchased. They offered some ‘blue’ versions of the same bulbs, but I’m not sure that I want blue headlamps.
